Who are One Dance UK’s Dance Ambassadors?
One Dance UK’s Dance Ambassadors are proactive, creative and confident young people from across the UK. They learn about the varied work of One Dance UK and advocate for the organisation and its activities across their networks, liaising with decision makers and stakeholders in their region and nationally. They also volunteer at a variety of dance-related events including conferences and youth dance performances and when possible provide support in the office at key times in the year. Dance Ambassadors provide a crucial ‘youth voice’ in One Dance UK’s advocacy work.
Since 2017/18 ODUK have partnered with Dance Consortium to develop the programme, combining it with their fantastic Future Leaders programme. This provides the Ambassadors with even more exciting opportunities to find out about the roles involved in taking dance on tour and showcasing dance in high profile large-scale venues.
Benefits for the Dance Ambassadors:
- An opportunity to work with two high profile national dance organisations – One Dance UK and Dance Consortium.
- Improved future career prospects, gaining a wealth of new skills, knowledge and experience.
- Develop professional contacts through a variety of networking opportunities.
